It has been a solid year since rapper Big Sean turned 30 and disappeared from the music industry without a word. But now he's back and ready to open up about where he went.
Just yesterday, the I Decided artist turned 31 and instead of ringing in his new year with videos of partying and festivities, he took to Instagram to make a major confession.
In the three videos, Big Sean explains that this past year he,
"wasn't feeling like myself and I couldn't figure out why. I just felt lost and I don't know how I got there."
He went on to explain that his feeling "lost" instigated his search for a therapist as well as implementing meditation.
"I got a good therapist. I was blessed enough to talk to some super spiritual people. They made me realize one thing I was missing in my life, and the one thing I was missing was clarity."
The rapper concluded his videos explaining that he has found joy and love through independence.
"I started realizing, you can't depend on somebody for love and a good time and all that if you can't give it to yourself. I started doing things by myself, doing things I never thought I'd do, like going skydiving or whatever I thought was fun," he said. "In the midst I definitely rediscovered myself, found a whole new energy, and me being a source of it and not somebody else."
Many people are happy that he is back and feeling better than ever.
